Quirky place, good local food

Not a place for the tourist who looks for a more standard experience (which I don't mean in any negative sense, and certainly not given Bolognas outstanding food culture) - but if you are willing to experience a style and humour that suits patient and generous friends more than guests in a... read more

Don't expect a menu and prices! Instead put yourself in the capable and cheerful hands of your generous host who, when you arrive, will present you with a delicious glass of chilled white wine, followed by complimentary starters and a never ending supply of bottled water. The food was freshly and expertly cooked, especially that signature Bolognaise dish of tortellini... More

Had a fantastic evening meal here at this neighbourhood restaurant. The complimentry starters was an amazing Guinea Fowl salad which was very tasty and the bread just wonderful. The mains were equally impressive and the desserts were just sublime. Even the house wine is excellent which I don't say too often. The owner is very friendly and walks around and... More

I have to say we are somewhat surprised by the lady from Ryes review, we ate here also as a result of AA Gills article and we arrived just after 8.30 to find people already in the restaurant but this did not seem to be a issue as we were shown immediately to our table and given drinks. It is... More

I had great hopes for this restaurant, having read a 5 star review from AA Gill in the Times. I booked it as a surprise for my husband's birthday trip to Bologna, and was really looking forward to our visit here. The plus was that it was a balmy evening and we could sit outside. As the website said it... More

I went here wanting to be amazed or at least pleased. Almost entirely par. One pasta dish: tortelloni with zucchini blossoms was very good. I had better oso buco in Switzerland! My wife's pasta dish was way over salted. This was our first day in Bologna. Still hoping to find what gives this town the foodie reputation.

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel. We were on a long weekend break in Bologna with two friends. Having called in at lunchtime while meandering through the streets, we booked for the evening. We were shown to our table in this bustling little place, and immediately brought a glass of prosecco! Great start! No menu, but the owner/maitre... More

Having read the reviews on trip advisor we wanted to seek out this little gem and we were not disappointed. Unable to book for that evening (take note and book well in advance) we decided to make it our leisurely lunch and what a good idea that was. Served the most delicious Prosecco and appetizer we were then entertained by... More

We took our son and his roommates out to dinner at this local favorite. After being seated we were served a couple of bottles of very nice sparkling wine. This was on the house and seemingly unlimited. Appetizers followed and then first courses. I had eggplant ravioli. Best I've ever eaten! The red sauce was obviously made there fresh and... More
